Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies Research Permits

 

A number of Overseas Territories have a research permitting system, which requires all potential reserachers to submit applications  for permission to carry out research. This page points potential researchers in the direction of some of these permitting requirements.

 

Note: This list is not intended to be comprehensive, there may be some permitting requirements that are not included, and others might have changed since publication. Please check with the relevant territory government to confirm what their current Research Permit requirements are.
